Glad you're enjoying the course. The lessons that will go up in the next four months are I'm On My Way Back to the Old Home, Will the Circle Be Unbroken, Long Journey Home, and On and On. Hope that helps.

This is a great course but it’s the first time I’ve enrolled in a course at the beginning so it seems short. Can you give me some idea what future lessons are planned so I can decide whether to stay with it or go away and com back later?
